Martian Child (2007)

"It could have been so easy for this story, about a single man adopting a troubled kid, to enter schmaltzville. But John Cusack manages to deliver plenty of warm fuzzies -- without the sugar shock." ‐E! Online

Things We Lost in the Fire (2007)

"Bring your tissues, ladies. Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro act their hearts out in a modern weepie that manages to hit all the marks, without being too terribly predictable." ‐E! Online

Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)

The Kingdom (2007)

"Breathless action sequences are balanced with a sensitive interpretation of the political and cultural gray areas of (Mid)East-West relations." ‐E! Online

The Brave One (2007)

"Thoughtful action picture? Meditation on grieving? The Brave One tries to be both but just misses its target, despite the presence of a magnetic Jodie Foster." ‐E! Online

Daddy Day Camp (2007)

Bratz: The Movie (2007)

"The dialogue is stupid, the plot is stupid, and unfortunately, the stars are as brainless as their plastic counterparts. This is girl power?" ‐E! Online

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007)

"For what could have been a stupid gross-out comedy (and let's face it, in the end it still ain't Masterpiece Theatre) has the ever-so-slightest hint of wit and goodwill." ‐E! Online

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End (2007)

"What floats the movie are Sparrow's grandiose gestures, his schoolyard bickering with Barbossa and the charmingly funny crew of the Black Pearl that provides trusty backup at every challenge." ‐E! Online

Georgia Rule (2007)

"It's an honest hard look at a very messy family, with a fantastic cast. The movie threatens to lose its way -- and its audience -- but ends up right where it should by the last scene." ‐E! Online

Next (2007)

Fracture (2007)

"Tightly scripted, good old-fashioned crime drama pitting two of our finest actors against each other in the courtroom. Not one computer effect or clichéd one-liner to be found." ‐E! Online

The Reaping (2007)

"Schlocky, obvious fight-flick that gets the shock job done, but at the expense of subtly, fun and, possibly, Hilary Swank's career." ‐E! Online

Children of Men (2006)

"Director Alfonso Cuarón takes his career to a whole other level here. He expertly preys on our doomsday fears, punctuating scenes with the harsh sounds and images of war we've already heard and seen on the nightly news." ‐E! Online

The Fountain (2006)

For Your Consideration (2006)

"For Your Consideration accurately hits La-La Land where it hurts, but at the expense of the rich characterization and sweet-natured comedy that made Guest's other flicks instant classics. Too bad." ‐E! Online

Man of the Year (2006)

"Instead of a highly relevant political satire, writer-director Barry Levinson takes the easy way out and churns a paint-by-numbers tale of corporate malfeasance. Guess he had no special interests in creating a smart, savvy comedy." ‐E! Online

Confetti (2006)
